From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Teachers

Thank You

We have been so inspired by these stories, not just the 101 that you have read in this volume, but the thousands that were submitted. We read them all, and they make us admire all the teachers out there even more than we already did. We hope that you will find them as inspiring as we did.

We owe special thanks to our editor Susan Heim, who not only read thousands of submissions, but also did the first round of editing and picking out the quotes that add so much value at the beginning of each story. We are also grateful to Ronelle Frankel, Mary Fisher, Barbara LoMonaco, and D’ette Corona for reading hundreds of submissions each.

D’ette Corona, our Associate Publisher, was Amy and Alex’s fearless leader in creating the final manuscript and working with all our wonderful writers. Barbara LoMonaco and Kristiana Pastir, along with outside proofreader Elaine Kimbler, jumped in at the end to proof, proof, proof. And yes, there will always be typos anyway, so feel free to let us know about them at [email protected] and we will correct them in future printings.

We also want to thank Alex’s wife, Megan Pincus Kajitani, for helping with story selection and preliminary editing behind the scenes. She shared a story with us in this collection as well.

The whole publishing team deserves a hand, including Senior Director of Marketing Maureen Peltier, Senior Director of Production Victor Cataldo, and graphic designer Daniel Zaccari, who turned our manuscript into this beautiful book.
